but Phil was loved
A few weeks ago at the Electric Theater (whoops. Kinetic Playground), Phil Lesh of the Grateful Dead gave a short course in the advantages of playing the bass keyed to the lead guitar. Jerry Garcia is a very fine guitarist, but the intricate and imaginative Lesh lends power and sustenance to every note he plays.

But not everybody liked this approach . Rock Scully who's dislike of Lesh, and his playing are apparent in his book . You get the feeling he really doesn't like the band till the "Workingman's" period . But I'm not impressed with his musical observations .
Later, when it seems that there is not as much f listening to each other, especially the drummers are on their own separate musical paths, things can get messy .
